Schakowsky: Assault Weapons Ban 'Just the Beginning'
Big Government ^ | 11 mar 2013

Posted on 03/11/2013 6:50:54 AM PDT by rellimpank

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), a member of the Democratic Party’s leadership in the House of Representatives, suggested to Jason Mattera at a Feb. 13 women’s rights rally that plans for an assault weapons ban and private-sales background checks were only the beginning of a broader gun control agenda extending to handguns as well.

Schakowsky evidently did not recognize Mattera, a conservative video journalist and senior investigative reporter for Talk Radio Network, who infamously confronted Vice President Joe Biden in the Capitol. (Mattera introduced himself to Schakowsky by name but did not indicate that he was filming or that he is conservative.) She spoke to Mattera as if he were a fellow gun control enthusiast--and Mattera played along, eliciting answers about Schakowsky’s enthusiasm for gun control.

Anybody with a lick of common sense knows the end game is confiscation.

These commies are coming out of the closet big time! Won’t be long before they’re wearing “Che” shirts into the Capitol. Nothing is stopping them from screaming their hideous beliefs from the roof tops.

Look for any restrictive gun control laws to land up in the courts.

Speaking of the dazzlingly ignorant Schakowsky, how’s her favorite WLSAM radio host, Don Wade, doing? I haven’t heard anything since he announced his surgery.

People are too afraid of being told their fears are “absurd” when you forthrightly state that the goal is confiscation.

And I’ll beg to differ with you on your use of the phrase “end game”. No, disarming the citizenry is JUST THE BEGINNING, not the end, of their “game”.

They need to be called on that, as well.

“Why do you want or need a disarmed citizenry? What are you going to do once people are defenseless?”

Know this: The ‘Assault Weapon’ Scam is just a means to ban ALL guns.

It’s just the Pro-Tyranny Left’s way of destroying a Constitutional right by simply re-labeling the object of that right as some thing else – something that can be demonized and destroyed.

Another prime example would be the terms ‘Hate Speech’, ‘High Capacity’ or ‘Military Style’.

Ask Pro-Tyranny Leftists to define these arbitrary terms – they will be incapable of giving you an exact answer because there is none.

Ask Pro-Tyranny Leftists to spell out the differences between the deliberately vague term ‘Assault Weapon’ and what is protected by the God-given and Constitutionally right to keep and bear arms and you’ll roll snake eyes on that on as well.

Fact is, the Pro-Tyranny Left cannot specify what these phrases mean because they are deliberately indefinable.

[unless you use these the phrase “Shoulder thing that goes up”, - that’s the exception /sarc.]

I agree that ANY gun control legislation will certainly be the “beginning of the end” for the socialist who have infected our Government! Every American needs to step up NOW and say “this far, NO MORE!

The only way to take back your government is to TAKE BACK YOUR government. As an example, this liberal socialist just got caught [conspiring] to violate her “oath of office” on video, this is an impeachable offense. Why no “articles of impeachment” are not forth coming immediately removing her sick demented a$$? Articles of impeachment originate in the US House of Representatives as I understand it. This would put every socialist on notice, the American people have had enough and will not take it any more!

If Americans cannot use the law to protect their Constitutional Rights, then, the only recourse they have is force to keep their “control” over this our of control government who views every American as a [subject] and not the “employer!”

Now that the process of taking away our guns is in process, I find as the calendar has turned from February into mid-March that there is no national news whatsoever of mass shootings or anything worthy of 24/7 coverage.

There’s nobody with a kid in a hole in the ground getting blown out of it, there’s nobody chasing after the entire LAPD, no Olympic stars have accidental shot girlfriends, no decorated snipers have been assassinated, and no wild west car-to-car gunfights in Las Vegas leading to a spectacular explosion.

Yep, February was a big month for spectacular gun crimes. And March apparently isn’t. And January wasn’t either. Yep.

Yah it’s a little nutty. But when I think of how quickly the black mobs came into being after the Martin/Zimmerman incident, and how quickly we saw a half-dozen “revenge for Trayvon” articles, I wonder if the same kind of outrage could be instilled to a virtual mob of specific unstable individuals from time to time with the goal of the law of big numbers working its magic.

First, the federal government disarmed the Indians.

There followed shortly the Trail of Tears (complements of a democrat president), the Sand Creek Massacre (cannons used), Wounded Knee.

It flows naturally from disarm to massacre, just as power to greed and then corruption.

Trust the Great (half) White Father to protect our gun rights as long as the grass shall grow, and the eagle fly...

Personally I believe Obamacare will be so bad when they get rolling with the Death panels, the Care Rationing, the taxes, and the expense and job lay-offs combined with a dollar that is more Confederate money than United States money, they know what will be coming their way.

And it aint pretty.

PS—I call it Confederate money, because basically that is what it is. Just money printed with nothing backing it, and only accepoted until someone says. “ What is this shyt actually worth?” If it is said it is worth the full integrity and honor of the United States Government that aint going to cut it.

When that happens things are going to get bad.

That’s a crapshoot I wouldn’t want to bet on.

The courts are no longer in our favor (even with John Roberts, who has shown he can be intimidated by the Obammunists).

They will be less so after four more years of Obama court appointments...

I would not be surprised if we will see less efforts to send to the courts any pro gun control laws to the courts because of “fear” if not the court justice, than a family member could very well get threats made.

no decorated snipers have been assassinated

The alarm bells went off in my head when I heard about Kyle's murder/assasination. The perp had told him mother he had made a pact with the devil. Was he purchased by the Muzzies? Was he a convert? Or just a psycho? (that is really not credible)

By the way, they had the equivalent of a State Funeral for him and there was very little coverage. Service was in Texas Stadium and the funeral procession was the longest in the history of the State of Texas. The Seals that attended were greated like family, a Texas thing.

Gun control will continue until the legal mechanism for it is stopped.

The key question is: HOW - exactly - is the 2nd Amendment ignored?

And here's the answer: By applying gun control to CORPORATE status - ONLY.

And then treating non-corporate people as corporations.

So, if we know the answer, why don't gun advocates use it?

Because that's the Scary Place.

Scorn if you want. But while you scorn, liberals laugh - and continue to pass their corporate laws and apply them to non-corporate citizens.

That is the truth.

And it got worse with the 2012 election...

...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, ...

When elected officials and bureaucracies act outside the law they are simply lawbreakers. When the majority of the people vote in favor of total lawlessness in the highest offices they are withdrawing their consent to be governed by a constitutional government. By what legitimate basis does the United States of America, as a Constitutional republic, still exist?

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

'The People' no longer support that. They voted in support of lawlessness from the highest office on down. They voted against the rule of law. By referendum we now have a banana republic. The USAINO.

That is the question and I think it can only be answered in the next presidential election. Or some great groundswell of outrage to oust these communist usurpers. Even if a majority of Americans oppose them in their hearts it will be meaningless if less than a majority stand up and demand redress.
